The New England Patriots have lost just 10 players off their final 53-man roster from 2012 thus far. With so little turnover, newcomers will need to stand out even more to make a positive impression, while old holdovers must prove themselves, once again, in order to hold onto their roster spots.

Though it's still early in the process, several players have made strong impressions after OTAs and minicamp. One prevalent theme has seen undrafted rookies challenging seasoned veterans for their roles. Besides those competitions, other bubble players include those whose skill sets may become redundant given the Pats' offseason acquisitions. 

With all of that in mind, here's a look at 10 players who will need good summers in order to enhance their chances of hanging around come the fall.
